Here is a picture of my 10" GPS partially configured for solar viewing. A Hydrogen-Alpha PST is on the right with the Calium K PST on the left. The PSTs are purposely offset mounted using a Losmandy 4" dovetail adapter. The offset mounting allows the HA PST's tuning ring to clear the CaK's blue ring (which is wider than the brass tube). This setup allows me to switch from the 4" refractor to solar viewing in less then 5 minutes with no tools. The reason I said it was partially configured is the white light solar filter is not mounted on the front of the SCT. Also the right angled view finder would be replaced with the Coronado Solarmax40 using the Stellarvue dovetail mount. That allows me to image with the Solarmax40 while sneaking a view with the PST.

Hi all

As a new owner of a new used LX200 10" f/10 Classic I browsed this thread with great interest and wish to share my set up with you: see attached file.

On my website you will find much more about my set up and home made stuff:

Clear, dark and stable skies !

Dear all

Thought I might as well start off my first post with something completely useless

So here's my setup - please note the clever scope cooling solution and the light pollution filter mounted in front of the observers lens

I can't get the camera far enough away in the observatory to get it all in, but here's a few pics anyway:

Here she rests in a JMI case which fits without modifying the foam for the feathertouch focuser knob, yay!


Close up of the Starlight Instruments FeatherTouch MicroFocuser knob upgrade. ;> I love this thing

Well, there's the beginning of my new setup. Thought I'd finally share after taking pictures today. I finally got the beast out today for a little while. My lil' one was with me so I couldn't do too much observing cause he got mad. Soon though! Soon!

Looks good Gandalf!
Lottery numbers must have come good in the end!
What did you do with your nice AR6?
Very nice setup though! I'm envious but I eventually got my 6"Achro(TS152 f8) and a Meade LXD75 SN8 to keep me happy over the summer months.

Lets just hope this crud weather in the UK shifts soon!
